At Nalchajian Orthodontics, our greatest goal is to provide every patient with the highest level of care and the best results in the Fresno, CA, and Clovis, CA, communities. Drs.

This means utilizing the latest technology to ensure the most accurate treatment plan and the best fit in custom appliances.
3D intraoral scanners are a small, hand-held device that digitally captures the structure of your teeth and gums. These radiation-free wands take a digital impression of your teeth and jaw that prove to be the most precise imaging technology available today. From these digital images, we can create a model of your teeth and map out your entire treatment plan.

The 3D scanner can also ensure the creation of well-fitting appliances, such as a palatal expander or a retainer.
Results are instant with a 3D scanner, which means less wait time to receive the appliances from an outside laboratory. Instead, the information is captured and sent digitally from our office to the laboratory on the same day.
We can plan every step of your treatment in advance with the use of digital impressions. We believe in providing the best care possible, and digital impressions are provided to you at no additional cost.
